Default Launching UI From ApplicationMenuItem

Please Login to Remove!

I have an ApplicationMenuItem bound within some of the PIM applications and would like to launch a UI screen on select. What's the best way to accomplish this?

Launch another application passing parameters? Is there a better way?

your menuitem has a run method. you can use it as your application constructor call similar to the main method of a normal application.

Just be careful not to launch multiple instances of your app! To avoid this you can use the tried tested and true method of storing your current application object in the runtime store.
